Galaxy Note 6 may ship with 5.8" display, 6 GB RAM and 12 MP camera

The ink from the Note 5's S Pen hasn't completely dried out yet, and we are already in for a rumor treat about its successor. That's not the first time we are hearing something about the phablet whose unveiling is many months away, and won't be the last, but the current speculation comes with a collection of specs that are pretty believable, with only one outlier...

Here's to hoping they add a SD card slot. My Note 3 is getting long in the tooth.

past year's trend was higher megapixels fight, but now bigger image sensor and less megapixels for better image quality.

I think Samsung is reducing megapixel to oversample images. They advertise 12mp but instead have a much higher megapixel camera. Images are oversampled like in the Z5 superior auto mode.23mp to 8mp.
Which gives insanely good image quality like in the Asian Z5 which was better than note 5.
Sorry people check manila shakers Z5 vs note5 vs G5 camera review. This is true.
European one is crap.

I have a weird feeling this is the reason. Sorry guys if I am wrong.please correct me.

I hope they have something better than UFS 2.0 because even the iPhone's storage is faster.

It's not, it's there tests, it's ufs is faster, in the test that Apple are the fastest in they have always been fastest in, it's the controler test

It's because they do not do file transfer to the PCsso do not have to port it and then there port is faster, but ufs is 100% faster

It's faster in sequential read/write. But since data is stored randomly, random read/write is more relevant, and in that UFS2 is faster.

But, both are plenty fast enough.

Now this is the news I'm looking for. If the S7 is going to be as stellar as they keep saying then the Note 6 is going to put everything else to shame. Samsung will gain a lot of market share with what they'er doing with devices as of late.

Not sure about reason for screen size bump...5.7" display is already large enough...If I have to guess...RGB layout...instead of pentile/diamond matrix. God knows when samsung will start optimizing memory (6GB...wow!) management instead of just bumping it upwards in every annual update.

I would definitely consider Nexus 6P(2016) based on Note6, made by Samsung.

Not 1024 it has to be 2048 pressure or more

Give us the RAM, but not the bad management.

What The hell! I don't like Samsung this strategy. Why to put anything that Apple does. The second in world on research and development facility yet it it has to do what the Apple has to do. You could had stick to 16mp one and made some more better things like high refresh rate. Make 2 separate cache modules on SOC for better optimization. Use dynamic sound system etc. Stop what Apple has to do. You aren't Apple on android. You are Samsung. Be intuitive and think what appeals masses more. Help creating better android.

your comment makes no sense whatsoever..how the hell does this mimic apple in anyway...12mp camera?...because they plan on using their new 12mp sensor with custom designed tech they're copying Apple..if tech companies followed people like you mobile phones would never progress!

While Samsung existing 16mp camera is good other OEMs are not sitting still and Samsung is making changes to stay on top of the league
